The school year is wrapping up as well as the sports seasons. All athletes are on the team because they’re good at what they do. Many may have even been Athletes of the Week and given individual awards at the end of their season. Few athletes who are graduating, however, will probably never play another game in their life, but a select few will be making it to the next level.
Seniors from the track team will be getting signed with colleges.
Senior, Brian Terry, is moving on to throw shot and discus at Southwestern Oregon Community College in Coos Bay, Oregon.
“I’m going to Southwestern Oregon Community College for a year or two. I wanted to go there because of the community, the amazing environment and great coaching staff. Also, it’s a great school to go to get your foot in the door with D-1 schools,” said Terry.
While throwing discus and doing shot put, Terry will also be studying Health and Physical Education.
Kyle Young will be attending Lassen Community College in Susanville, California to play baseball and to study welding.
“There was no scholarship involved, my coach simply contacted the school for me and the college coach. I made a verbal agreement that I would play baseball with his team,” said Young.
Young is looking for every opportunity to continue playing baseball.
“I just love the game, and I want to continue playing until I no longer have the opportunity,” said Young.
Kenadee Jeppsen will be attending University of Nevada, Reno, to participate in track and field but is still not sure what to major in.
“I plan to go to college at UNR to participate in track and study nursing or elementary education,” said Jeppsen.
Brandon Dowd will be attending Southwestern Oregon Community College for pole vaulting as well.
